Please guys, continue to interprete my words to serve your own agendas rather 
than asking me for any kind of clarification. Really. It's fine. 

For the rest of the world, my definition of non-code contributors are 
contributors who have not contributed C code to the back end. To that end, 
the bit that non-code contributors can't be considered major contributors is 
pure bunk; several people have made it into the list of "Major Contributors" 
who fit that mold, and actually we have 3 core team members who, were they to 
step down from core, I suspect would be placed in the list of Major 
Contributors as well.
